St. John's Maple Leafs Game 43: Preview and Review: Wed. Jan. 14th, 2004

It is Wednesday, January 14th, 2004.

The St. John's Maple Leafs begin their three game road trip tonight with a game against the Chicago Wolves at the Allstate Arena. The Leafs and Wolves have played three times this season with the Wolves leading the series 2-1. The teams split a pair of games at Mile One Stadium back in November and the Wolves defeated the Leafs in their first visit to Chicago. The Leafs will look to even the season series and improve their record on the road. Game Time is 7:00 pm Central, 8:00 pm Eastern and 9:30 pm Newfoundland Time.

The Maple Leafs have played 42 games so far this season and have an Overall Record of 19-18-4-1. The Maple Leafs just finished a four game home-stand that saw the club improve to 9-7-4-0 at Mile One Stadium after 20 games. The Leafs are 10-11-0-1 on the road and will look to improve that tonight with a victory. The Blue and White are 4-4-2-0 in their Last-10 and are coming off of a hard fought 4-4 tie against the Toronto Roadrunners at Mile One Stadium in the Maple Leafs 1000th game in St. John's. The Leafs have scored 119 goals this season but have given up 131. The Leafs are 33-for-223 on the powerplay (14.80%) and the Leafs have given up 43 PPGA on 212 TSH (79.72%).

Leafs Earn Point...Gavey 1G, 1A...Holden 1G, 1A...Druken GTG...Tellqvist 32 Saves

St. John's Maple Leafs 3
Chicago Wolves 3

Hard Earned Point...Gavey 1G, 1A...Holden 1G, 1A...Druken GTG...Tellqvist 32 Saves

The St. John's Maple Leafs and the Chicago Wolves played to a 3-3 tie Wednesday night at the Allstate Arena. The Wolves had a 2-nothing lead after 20 minutes and a 3-1 lead after 40 minutes but the Maple Leafs scored two third period goals to tie the game and earn the point. If not for the play of the Wolves goaltender Kari Lehtonen the Leafs would have won this game in the second period. Lehtonen made 33 saves through 40 minutes, but did not start the third period after being bumped by Ben Ondrus; the Leafs caught a break and took advantage of it. With the tie the Leafs are now unbeaten in five games (2-0-3-0).

The Leafs had a great chance early in the opening period when Josh Holden got in behind the Wolves defence and went in alone on Lehtonen but failed to score. The Wolves opened the scoring in the hockey game with a goal off the stick of Eric Healey, his 14th of the season, with the assists to Kurtis Foster and Tommi Santala at the 10:54 mark. The goal was a result of missed assignments by the Maple Leafs. The Leafs held the edge in shots for most of the period but the Wolves opened a 2-nothing lead with a goal off the stick of Kamil Piros, his 6th of the season, with the lone assist to Steve Maltais at the 17:26 mark. The goal was a result of a turnover in the Leafs zone and Tellqvist was not ready for the shot. Shots in the first period were 17-17.

The Leafs came out for the second period and played with a purpose. The Leafs cut the lead to 2-1 early in the middle stanza with a powerplay goal off the stick of Aaron Gavey, his 12th of the season, with the assists to Josh Holden and Chris Chartier at the 2:06 mark. The Leafs' outshot the Wolves' 11-2 at one point in the middle stanza and were dominating the play. If not for the play of the Wolves netminder Kari Lehtonen it could have been at least 4-2 or 5-2 Leafs. As happens so many times in the game of hockey one team dominates the play and the other team comes back and scores a goal. The Wolves would take a 3-1 lead on a powerplay goal off the stick of Kamil Piros, his 2nd of the game and his 7th of the season, with the assists to Daniel Corso and Greg Hawgood at the 16:44 mark. Shots in the second period were 17-9 in favor of the Maple Leafs, 34-26 in favor of the Maple Leafs through 40 minutes. Note: The Leafs' Ben Ondrus ran into Kari Lehtonen late in the period and Lehtonen was shaken up on the play but he managed to stay in to finish the period.

The Wolves made a change in goal to start the third period; Frederic Cassivi replaced Lehtonen who was shaken up in the second period after being run over by Ben Ondrus. A break for the Maple leafs because Lehtonen was outstanding through 40 minutes with 33 saves. The Leafs needed to test Cassivi early and often. Some added excitement early in the third period with two fights: at the 3:44 mark the Leafs Aaron Gavey fought the Wolves Karl Stewart and at the 4:00 minute mark the Leafs Robb Palahnuk fought the Wolves Shawn Heins. The Leafs continued to work hard and were rewarded for the effort. The Leafs made it 3-2 with a powerplay goal off the stick of Josh Holden, his 6th of the season, with the assists to Brad Leeb and Brendan Bell at the 11:16 mark. The Leafs had a 5-on-3 man-advantage but they failed to score. The Leafs tied the game at three with a goal off the stick of Harold Druken, his 12th of the season, with the assists to Aaron Gavey and Nathan Barrett at the 16:42 mark. Shots in the third period were 12-7 in favor of the Maple Leafs, 46-33 in favor of the Maple Leafs after regulation.

Both teams traded chances in the overtime but there was no scoring. Game ended in a 3-3 tie. Shots in the overtime were 4-2 in favor of the Maple Leafs, 50-35 in favor of the Maple Leafs in the game.

3 Stars:
1 Kari Lehtonen-33 saves in 40 minutes
2 Kamil Piros-2G's
3 Eric Healey-G
